– the Egyptian government plans to increase visa fees to $60 for the Visa-on-Arrival from on Thursday March 1st
That’s a surprising move and won’t help the struggling tourism industry in the country.
– Ethiopian Airlines has some great deals from India (we tried Delhi) to Southern Africa (Windhoek, Cape Town, Durban) for $1,199 Round Trip
Sadly these fares book into P which earns just on a handful of Star Alliance Programs (but it does earn 100% at least if so).
Ethiopian has the brand new A350 or the 787 on the Cape Town route right now.
The booking class Z earns 100%-130% on most Etihad partner programs. You earn between 16,000 – 20,000 miles for the whole trip.
